Can you change closed caption text size on the app

I am using a Samsung Smart TV. I change the text size to small on my computer but it remains large and takes up too much room. I don't see any way to change the settings when using the TV.

Thanks for any help.

    Hello @Leenc01 and welcome to the forums!

    Please try the following to see if that changes anything.

    Explore the Spectrum TV App for Samsung Smart TV | Spectrum Support

    If this does not solve the problem, I would recommend trying the captions on the TV to see if that changes anything.

    I tried all of this and nothing changed the caption size on the TV or computer. This app is just not ready for prime time. The big problem is that the cloud DRV is not compatible with Samsung TV's. The people in the store and on the help desk say it is but when I finally got connected to the streaming department they confirmed is will not work on Samsung. This information needs to be made available to everyone. When that feature works on my TV I will give streaming TV choice another try.

    Im sorry for the frustration with the settings on the Samsung.

    The Closed Caption settings for the website are found under the settings. Select that with the little gear on the far right side. Gives quite a few different options for that, size, the window and background. The little CC icon is just to turn that on or off.

    I did all of those steps but the size only changed on my iPad and Apple TV. Not on computer and not on Samsung TV. I have given up on this for now and gone back to YouTube TV. More expensive but also more user friendly.
